Why Attend Cycle County Active County?
Key projects from Essex County Council: building in activity
More than 136,000 new homes will be needed over the next 20 years, 6,800 per year, across Essex County Council’s boundaries (when the unitary authorities of Southend and Thurrock are included, that figure rises to 180,000 homes).
It's important that new homes and regeneration projects are planned from the outset with integrated, sustainable transport connectivity, including first / last mile active travel options that supplement public transport and intelligent mobility solutions such as demand responsive and shared transport. Essex County Council will share their proposed plans for such new development, and benefit from best practice learning from regions that are facing similar challenges.
Major schemes include the Essex Cycling Strategy, Essex Walking Strategy, Modal Shift Strategy, LCWIP, Sustainable Modes of Travel Strategy (SmoTS), a Sport England Local Delivery Pilot and travel planning schemes.
500+ delegates regularly attend Europe's largest annual gathering of cycling and walking development professionals.
